My favorite part of Mother's Day is its proximity to a precious little girl's birthday--my Maryn Elise. She is four years old today. I can hardly believe it. We had fruit pizza for breakfast, and her cake is in the oven for tonight. She has told me she is giving me her blankies tonight (forever) after she gets her presents. :) I really hope it isn't traumatic for her.
Sam "bought" her a Dora fishing pole. We bought her a Tinkerbell costume and some Tinkerbell shoes. I know she will be thrilled. Her party with our extended family is on Saturday. I love my big girl. Here's a look at the previous years:

Maryn, you are beautiful--ridiculously so. You are vivacious, nurturing, and dramatic. Your giggles and goofiness brighten our family. You are Sam's best friend, and Lucy's mentor. :) You love to sing and dance and all things girly--but you like to play with Sam's toys too. You know all your letters, and you're learning all the sounds and how to write them. You are very smart. You memorize movie lines better than your dad. You are a blessing to us, and we love you!
